      Funny how there was a total media blackout of the "Veterans for Ron Paul March" that took place Presidents Day. Over a thousand active duty and Veteran soldiers from all braches of the military showed up. Yet, not one of the 5 major networks covered it. They are scared to death of Ron Paul and that right there should be a clue.

    Is he still in the race? yikes Seriously though, while I know you love this guy, do you feel he has a chance for the nomination - can you give a truly objective answer on this? as an outside observer who cannot vote (green card holder)he seems to have been marginalized and it will take some major slip up by the other guys for him to have a chance.

      This battle has to be fought one delegate at a time.

      He probably has the most delegates.

      He also nationally ranks even with Obama in votes.

      And he's consistent.

    I'm only a few delegates behind him at the moment

      Actually, he probably has the most total.

      Those straw polls don't matter.

    This vaguely reminds me of the "Crush on Obama" video... but with Ron Paul.

    The biggest problem for Ron Paul, is that so many voters look at the candidates in a superficial manner instead of what is in their heart and mind.  He looks like a old man and many times people will not see beyond that.

      It's the young who embrace him. He has more problems with the older crowd.

        Ron Paul looked more alert and healthier than the younger men on the stage.

    That's because he speaks truth to power. On one level.

    But...if these young women knew this:

    "Personhood bills effectively outlaw abortion, and, depending on the language, make illegal certain types of birth control and even in vitro fertilization."

    He'd be toast.

        Wow, this guy's an idiot. ... Oh! Look at that! He's a socialist!

        The mistakes he made are easy to point out.

        1) he thinks people only like Paul because he talks about legalizing drugs.

        Wrong.

        2) he claims that people who like smoking weed don't listen to any of his points beyond "legalizing drugs".

        wrong.

        3) O'Donnel assumes that fetuses aren't people, and thus thinks that murdering them is simply a matter of "choice"

        Wrong.

        4) OD thinks that Ron Paul is against all abortions ever

        Wrong.

        5) OD thinks that murdering people is a right of choice.

        Wrong.

        6) OD regularly uses the words "Libertarianism" and "libertarianism" interchangeably.

        WRONG.

        7) OD apparently thinks that "talking about birth control" = hating sex.

        ... i don't know what the hell he's talking about.

        8) OD apparently thinks that, because Ron Paul doesn't like people having careless sex he would try to legislate against it

        Wrong.

        9) OD apparently has never heard a debate before. He thinks that "framing an opinion about an issue using the language that was just used" is evil.

        wrong.

        Ron Paul using the term "immorality" in that situation is clearly him talking to a group of people who think that having sex is immoral. He was making a point about cause and effect and using the language in the debate at the time.

        Lawrence O'Donnell: openly admits he wants to crush Ron Paul.

        Lawrence O'Donnell: fails.

    Actually many young women realise that the sensible solution is to let the states decide. And I think they realise that that's the compromise they have to take if they want to save millions of lives by bringing the troops home.

    We have bigger things to worry about than a bit of debt.  There is no good reason to take apart our governement, and no, no matter who is elected, the country will not fall apart.  As far as Ron Paul is concerned, he is the most destructive choice for president.  Thank the founders that we have a congress to stop Paul if he was elected.

      Oh is that all? Just the debt? You do know that the debt is going to bankrupt every family in the United States right? The dollar is toast if we let this continue, and if that means dismantling your precious government, I'm willing to make that sacrifice!

    Blowhard's take on it:

    Birth-control moms? You better belive it!

    While you all are worrying about a potential life--I'm worried about my baby...the one that's already here.

      Why would you link to Rush Limbaugh on a Ron Paul debt forum?

      The guy is so hepped up on hypocritical pain pills that his opinions on anything are void.
